AH ' 15 Student Design Competition
Important Dates

   - Jan 31, 2015 - Student Design Competition Deadline

Theme: Altered Reality


With the advent of on-body sensors and ubiquitous computing systems,
technology can be used to enhance our capabilities and augment our
perception to create highly customizable, personal feedback loops of our
surroundings. The world as we know it is no more. Now imagine the world as
we don't know it. Defy our notion of the physical by using the digital! We
invite you to create augmented systems that challenge our perception of our
existing reality. What happens as our reality becomes skewed? How will  we
react? What if your friend's forehead becomes a display? Could this enable
human-human interaction? Could we broadcast our mood and create wearable
social networks? What if we could create our own theme songs using your
emotional state. You are only limited by your own creativity! Now go


   1. Make a team!
   2. Imagine an AH device based on this competition's theme. You can
   design (or redesign) an everyday object, a wearable form of technology, a
   toy, a gaming system, etc. The project can be for the elderly, for
   yourself, for your favorite pet, for a child, for an artist, or more! The
